    DeKALB, Ill. -- With individual victories in both the 5K and 1,500-meter events, Northwestern had a strong performance at Saturday's Huskie/Blue Demon Classic hosted by Northern Illinois on Saturday.

Her classmate, Julia Buford, took second in 17:33.4 to set a personal best for the spring, while senior Allegra Mayer (17:35.9) and freshman Megan O'Brien (17:37.7) rounded out the top four.
